I have an idea to deal with the suspension in compression, I just need to figure out how to deal with rebound loads and I might have a $200 solution for getting over speed bumps

Hi Adrian, I would have thought it was called rebound, as the stored energy in the spring is released, but i have been known to be wrong many times. This site will have the answer, http://www.eng-tips.com/threadminder.cfm?pid=800

Does anyone know what the force is as the suslension is unloaded during suspension cycling?
